Richie Williams and Curt Onalfo have joined the New England Revolution as Bruce Arena begins to assemble his technical staff.
Williams left his post as the head coach of Loudoun United FC of the USL Championship to reunite with Arena. He will serve as an assistant coach, bringing with him 15 years of coaching experience. He was Arena’s assistant coach with the USMNT from 2017-18, as well as the New York Red Bulls from 2006-07.
“Richie and I have a relationship that dates back nearly 30 years, and I have the utmost confidence that he will bring the same energy, enthusiasm, and expertise of the game to the Revolution that he has throughout each stop of his coaching and playing career,” Arena said in the press release. “I look forward to bringing him onboard and getting him integrated into club as quickly as possible.”
Onalfo will be the Revolution’s technical director and will report directly to Arena. Onalfo has worked with Arena in the past, as he was his assistant coach with the Galaxy from 2011-14 and the head coach of the club’s USL side, LA Galaxy II, from 2014-16.
“I am very pleased to add Curt to our technical staff as we continue to build the soccer organization in New England,” Arena said. “Having worked with Curt for many years, I know his vast knowledge and experience in the game will make him an immediate asset to the club.”
